Why so many signings today?
 
Seems like there is always a day that this happens every year. Genuinely curious, am I missing something?

It's the David Schlemko Domino effect.

Good question, I was wondering this myself.

There is lots, but sometimes it's nothing. Teams just extended players, could result in them moving other players now that they locked up said players.

You will also see a bunch with a shortened season. These are contracts they likely agreed o with terms and then gradually did the finer point so it took about 4-5 weeks to get it done.

another factor are the teams schedules. Since each team is required to have something like a 4 day break in the season if the teams are having that now then its a good time to get these done and publicized.

right now you kind of have a sports news dead spot. in March you have publicity with NFL UFAs and MLB spring training into high gear and NBA playoff run starts. in March the focus will be on standings and tradetalk.

Seems like they come in bunches, eh?

It's also a Monday, so I suspect the contracts were damn close over the weekend and just finalized today.
